How Can a Car Accident Lawyer Help You?
Recovering compensation after a car crash is not always as easy as it seems. The other driver may deny liability, or an insurance company may offer you a low-ball settlement that doesn't even come close to covering your losses.
Taking on a large insurance corporation or negligent vehicle manufacturer is no easy feat. An experienced car accident attorney can be incredibly helpful in negotiating with difficult insurance adjusters, uncovering evidence, and proving liability in your case. Our firm has the experience, resources, and commitment to pursue the financial compensation you deserve, no matter the odds.
Will My Case Go to Trial?
If you call or retain a Sacramento auto accident attorney, it does not automatically mean your case will go to trial.
Generally, personal injury cases settle out of court. However, if it becomes necessary for your case to go to trial, Kershaw, Cook & Talley has experienced and skilled trial attorneys to handle your case.
Proving Fault in a Car Accident Claim
It's important to establish who is at fault for the accident that caused your injuries in order to know who can be held liable for your losses. While many car accidents involve one at-fault driver, other accidents involve multiple parties or shared fault.
Our Sacramento car accident attorneys can put our extensive experience to work for you, utilizing investigators, accident reconstructionists, and other experts to pursue maximum compensation from the person/people responsible for your injuries, including:
- Drugged or drunk drivers
- Rideshare drivers and/or their companies
- Distracted or texting drivers
- Uninsured drivers
- Commercial truck drivers and/or their employers
- Bus drivers and transportation companies
Accidents with Uninsured Motorists
Even though California law requires all motorists to have auto insurance, it has more uninsured drivers than any other state. If you've been injured by a driver without insurance, you may face significant obstacles in recovering the compensation you deserve.
However, there are a few options our team can pursue on your behalf:
- Filing a UMC/UIM claim with your own insurance.
- Filing a separate civil lawsuit against the negligent driver.
Since it's unlikely that an uninsured motorist will have sufficient assets to cover the expenses related to your injuries, your best chance at recovering compensation is through your own insurance policy.
